Reviews for Chicken Cacciatore Skillet
"This is a one pot meal if you have a jar of meatless sghetti sauce. If not, you can make your own. Took an hour to make the complete recipe. Undercook the rice so it isn't mushy when combining with the sghetti sauce. Omitted the 'rooms & gr. pepper. Serve with Parmesan cheese."
